Due to our network configuration, users cannot access our external website via it's external ip address.

However, they can via the local IP of the server in the DMZ.

I want to add a new DNS record to redirect requests for www.mycompanyname.co.uk to the internal IP - please can someone tell me where in DNS I need to do this.

Note: the website name is not the same as our domain name, so there will e no conflicts there.

Just add a primary zone for mycompanyname.co.uk in your DNS server and add a host record with the internal ip for the www host www.mycompanyname.co.uk. I think that will do the trick. Another solution is to change the hosts file on each workstation... which i think might be a bit painful...
